COVID 19 PROTOCOL FOR WORSHIP

While we are here to rejoice in God’s house, we still have to follow the rules for social distancing; wearing a mask and sanitizing hands on your way in and out of church.  If you are wearing gloves, please dispose of them at home.  Please take your masks and bulletins home to limit exposure and the amount of recycling for the church.  A detailed description of worship guidelines is on the small table with the bulletin and offering plates.

           Online Donations

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we find ourselves in a situation where gathering as God’s people has changed or been modified from normal practices. We are all faced with the challenge of how to continue giving our regular tithes and offerings to support the local ongoing Word and Sacrament ministry of our congregation. In order to continue our regular giving to our congregation there are two options available online.

1. Credit card donation

Lutheran Church Canada has provided an online option using your credit card to donate and automatic tax receipt is generated. Press the green donate online button below.  

 

2. e-Transfer

From your bank account you can send to email address:  gracelutheranoshawa.treasurer@gmail.com

 

What is a Lutheran?

 

Lutherans are those Christians who choose to accept Martin Luther's teachings.  On October 31, 1517, Luther, a Catholic monk, posted his 95 Theses as a challenge to the doctrine and practices of the Roman Catholic Church, hoping to reform the practices he felt were inconsistent with scripture.

What is the Lutheran faith?

 

The Lutheran faith is the Christian faith of Western Christendom as reformed by Martin Luther and others in the Book of Concord (1580).  On October 31, 1517, Luther, an Augustinian monk, posted his 95 Theses that challenged the errors of the Roman Catholic Church. He hoped to reform church practices according to the bible alone.

The Liturgy

 

At Grace we always follow the historical and traditional Lutheran liturgy of the western church as it is found in our hymnal, the Lutheran Service Book. This page provides an explanation of the part of the liturgy and the references to the Holy Scriptures from which the liturgy is drawn.

Welcome to EDLYA!

Our goal is to foster fellowship and growth amidst the young adults (any member aged 18-35!) of the East District of Lutheran Church Canada. If you too are a young adult, then you are invited to join us! We hope to see you at one of our upcoming events.
